Importing Final Cut Pro XML Files (FCP XML Import)

You can import an XML file exported from Final Cut Pro to edit with EDIUS.


  • For the Final Cut Pro multi-clip, those selected in the multi-clip are placed to the EDIUS timeline.

  • The following items cannot be restored in EDIUS.

    • Title (text) clip

    • Transition applied to the clip and a blank

    • All transitions other than dissolve (all transitions are replaced with dissolve)

    • Key frame

    • Video filter

    In addition, the same sequence clips may be imported as different sequence clips. The sequence clips are imported as the same sequence clips only if the sequence IDs are included and the internal tags are empty.

1) Click the [Open Project] list button in the timeline.

2) Click [Import Project] → [FCP XML].


3) Select an XML file in the [Project Importer (FCP XML)] dialog box, and click [Open].
